Collins Arabic Big Cat is a guided reading series for ages 3 to 11. The series is structured with reference to the learning progression of Arabic at nursery and primary schools researched especially for Collins. This carefully graded approach allows children to build up their reading knowledge of Arabic step by step. Level 11 books provide more literary language, more complex sentence structures and less support from illustrations. Characters are more varied, with action sustained over several pages. Non-fiction titles include glossaries where necessary. Sentences are still short for better understanding. However, grammatical vowel endings are more evident to encourage fluent reading and to provide familiarity with some higher-level features of written Arabic. This book examines the fastest animals and vehicles on land, in the air, and in water, and explores what it is that makes them capable of travelling at such great speeds. Packed with statistics and interesting facts, illustrated with stunning photographs, this information book will be enjoyed by boys and girls alike. A table on pages 22 and 23 summarises the fast facts featured within the book.
